Water Potential Problems
1. What is the solute potential Ψs of a 1.0M sugar solution at 22 degrees Celsius under standard
atmospheric conditions?
2. Zucchini cores are measured and determined to have a sucrose concentration of 0.36 M.
Calculate the solute potential Ψs of these cells. (Temperature is same as question #1.)
Will water go in or out of the plant cell?
Plant cell
pure water
3. If solute potential in the plant cell in question 2 is –6.25 bars and pressure potential is 6.25
bars, what is the water potential of the plant cell? What does this indicate in terms of water
movement?
4. A dialysis bag containing 0.1% sucrose is placed in a beaker containing 0.4% sucrose. The
beaker is open to the atmosphere.
What is the pressure potential Ψp of the system?
_____________
What is the water potential of this dialysis
bag?________________
Water will move _______________ the dialysis bag.
5. What is the water potential for a solution in an open container that is 0.1M?
(assume i = 1, and a temperature of 22°C)
6. What is the solute potential for a solution that is 0.5M?
(assume i = 1, and a temperature of 10°C)
7. A plant cell has a solute potential of –4.0 bars and a pressure potential of 1.0 bar. What is its
water potential? If this cell is placed in a solution with a water potential of –5.0 bar. What
will happen to this cell?
8. A plant cell has a solute potential of –2.0 and a pressure potential of 0.0. What is its water
potential? It is placed in a solution with a water potential of –1.0. What will happen to this
plant cell?
9. If a cell’s ΨP = 2 bars and its ΨS = -3.5 bars, what is the resulting Ψ?
10. What is the solute potential Ψs of a 3.5M sugar solution at 22 degrees Celsius in an open
beaker?
